A recent Pew poll found 9 in 10 U.S. adults say they celebrate Christmas.

Washington CNN  — 

Did President Donald Trump live up to his promise to end the “war on Christmas”? Depends on who you ask.

While some would quibble with the very idea that a war on the holiday exists, recent polling does suggest that the Christian nature of Christmas is less culturally prevalent than in the past.

A Pew Research Center survey, published last week, found that most US adults believe the religious aspects of the holiday are emphasized less now than they used to be. But overall, just 31% of adults said “they are bothered at least ‘some’ by the declining emphasis on religion in the way the U.S. commemorates Christmas.”
